Need to add "Comment" to a Question.

Occasional Visitor

I am making a questionnaire in Microsoft Forms.  There is one question and 5 choices.  I would like to add a text box under the same question number for the respondent to provide additional information.  I don't see how to add the text "Comment:     " and a block for text without adding another question number and text that says "Provide additional information in response to Question #1".


Thank you.

Hi @JackDog343 


There's currently no feature that will do that as far as I know.


Your option to have an additional question after the first multiple choice question appears to be the only way forward for now.


Hope that helps.


Best wishes


Hi @JackDog343,

Uservoice open for it here

Quite a few votes, would recommend you vote to push it up the agenda.

Workaround, as stated is to have the choice question and text the section but frame the section question as required.

Let’s hope that uservoice is picked up in the future. Would like to see this.

Best, Chris

Hi Folks,

There is a second UserVoice asking for this exact comment functionality with 725 votes at time of writing. Hopefully Microsoft might pick this up soon.

That second UserVoice may have more votes but its packed full of spambot ads for escort agencies. Needs to be sorted out as its detracting from a really useful feature.



This is possible if you use branching but it still requires another question. 









Ho did you add more than one question on the form ?

I only have this screen in Forms inside Teams:

@Blogbuchstabe you can't have branching with the Forms app in Teams, you need to use the full web version.
